RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Chatham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a RICS Level 3 Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Chatham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a RICS Level 3 Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Chatham property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For the Chatham RICS Level 2 Survey, what will 'E6' include?

RICS Level 2 Survey are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Chatham are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible.
